History

VeryOne

VeryOne inherits centuries of nitration experience developed for the French Defence.

In 1984, SNPE (Société nationale des poudres et explosifs) identified a growing potential demand for a nitrated diesel fuel Cetane Improver. As a global leader in the field of nitration, SNPE began manufacturing Cetane Improver in its Sorgues (France) production facility.

Capitalizing on its extensive experience in alcohol nitration, coupled with vast expertise in the manufacturing of explosives, SNPE developed its own specific production process to safely produce Cetane Improver, also known as 2-Ethylhexyl Nitrate (2-EHN) .

In 1997, SNPE introduced a second production unit, and began the construction of waste acid recycling units on-site to improve production flexibility, while considerably reducing the site’s environmental impact.

More than 20 years later, VeryOne is the world’s leading manufacturer of 2-EHN. The production of Cetane Improver has become a fully integrated and vital part of the EURENCO Sorgues manufacturing complex, and continues to introduce significant production improvements while progressively increasing its manufacturing capacities.

In November 2012, anticipating the growing need for fuel additives offering both technical and economical advantages, EURENCO launched a new brand to promote its 2-EHN solution and meet the strong market demands worldwide: VeryOne® Fuel Improvers.

Dedicated to providing outstanding customer service, VeryOne arranges efficient storage and distribution channels all over the world, to ensure available supply and prompt delivery.

The July 1st 2018, VeryOne became officially a subsidiary of EURENCO. This new company, wholly owned by EURENCO, is specialised in the development, production, and sale of products aimed at improved diesel quality. VeryOne is the world leader in 2-EHN diesel fuel additives, relying on more than 8 000 tons in Europe and more than 6 000 tons of North American product storage, as well as an annual capacity of 80,000 metric tons of Cetane Improver.

VeryOne’s purpose is also to prepare for the future by proposing innovative fuel additives that increase revenue and sustain the business in the long run.

To support the development of its customers and to best answer their needs, VeryOne created in January 2018 the company « Guangzhou YILI Materials » based in Canton. This 2-EHN distribution subsidiary will be able to answer directly and reactively to the numerous demands of the Chinese refiners and fuel additives producers.

Indeed, the Chinese fuel market is evolving rapidly and the improvement of the diesel quality to limit pollutant emissions is on the rise.


Today, we look back at more than 2 million tons of production and sales of VeryOne® Fuel Improvers, and aspire to serve global customers, large and small, well into the 21st century.

VeryOne is the EURENCO Subsidiary dedicated to fuel additives.
